Gonna see how they work with my system. If they don't work, move on to another type. And before you ask, I have pcos and last time I took vitamins they helped with the more extreme aspects (lack of aunt flow being one). I couldn't find the type of vitamins I was taking then, would of helped If I remembered the name...oops. <BR> First step in getting my tush in gear. Walking. Before the snow hits in a month or so. <BR> I hate the cold... brrr...... Wed, 2 Oct 2013 19:25:06 EST Determination I spent today looking up amazing exercises... I am determined to get my tush in gear. <BR> I've got weight to lose and now is the time to do it. <BR> <BR> Healthy eating too... <BR> I just have to get my sleep patterns in line now. <BR> <BR> Living life to it's fullest, <BR> conquering my world, one step at a time, <BR> Losing this weight, one pound at a time. <BR> <BR> Cheers <BR> Rhonda Fri, 19 Jul 2013 22:20:22 EST A good day! My sleep patterns are as whacked out as usual, but I ate a delicious lunch(breakfast). <BR> It has kept me so stuffed. <BR> My mood is really good today too. Happy and really chill... Always a good things <BR> I have also made a plan with my best friend to go out walking more. I don't walk on my own. When we are together we go for walks that are 3 hours long and we can never figure out how that much time has passed. I always feel amazing afterwards, if a little sore. <BR> I want to lose ab... Thu, 2 May 2013 18:43:06 EST It's just like that. My legs feel like jell-o. <BR> I did the 20 minute dumbbell workout yesterday. My arms feel fine. Hurrah. My legs hahahaha. When your cat laying on your legs feels good, you know a workout is worth it. <BR> I also joined a new group. Eat healthy, lose weight... Maybe it will help me convince my body that it needs to have sustenance. As it is I rarely feel hungry. But I make myself eat, at least a little. <BR> Wishin' everyone luck. <BR> Rhonda Fri, 15 Mar 2013 16:03:19 EST Highest to lowest I'm down to 246!!!! Had the flu these past two weeks. Not conducive to exercise. ALL BETTER NOW. So I made the decision that with my new laptop(I love it!) I am more likely to shirk my exercise plans. SO this is what I set for my self. For every 15 crunches, sit ups, push ups etc... I get 15-30 minutes (depending on intensity and how many sets I do at a time) to do whatever on the computer. This was working prior to the flu attack s now that it's over..... Well I'll let you now if it keeps w... Wed, 13 Mar 2013 04:26:34 EST Stress. Good for my weight, bad for my head. So drama, or better said chaos, has erupted in my family over the last few months. I was up at 261 lbs last month. I am now 250. Party over here. The reason for losing the weight. No bueno. <BR> My sleep has been officially overhauled by my stress as well. I went from going to bed at almost 3 am, taking 2 hrs to fall asleep, sleeping 3 hrs a night at most to going to bed at 9 - 10 pm. falling asleep withing the hour and im still sleeping in 3 hr increments, but now when I wake up, I fall bac... Tue, 27 Nov 2012 14:39:14 EST Gettin it done. So I am not the best at actually getting my rear end into gear and doing workouts. I rip out workouts from the magazines i read, but never actually do them. I really need to get my priorities straight. I'm going to be 22 next month and I am no where near losing 22 lbs by then. <BR> I read about these people who lower the amount of carbs they ate 2 consecutive days in a week. They supposedly lost 8 lbs the first week. Maybe I will try that. See how it does. Hopefully I can do that as a ... Fri, 25 May 2012 01:51:05 EST PCOS. Well now. Where to start. I guess I should explain what PCOS is for those of you who don't know. It is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. In other words my monthly friend's timer is shut off. Yeah that's a good way to explain it. <BR> What this means for my weight loss.... Let's start, my body doesn't use insulin like it is supposed to. Because the insulin isn't used correctly, my body creates more. When that isn't used it becomes fat in the body. So with everything I eat my body is figh... Mon, 26 Mar 2012 00:05:59 EST motivation..... not easy to find So.... In my head I say I am going to exercise every day. Actually doing it.... yeah sure. I have a hard time getting the motivation through my head. I feel weird about what I wear, how my hair looks, My face. I'm not confident in my own skin. That's something I really have a need to work on. But then how do I work on that if I can't get my head past those things. <BR> Changing my eating habits, easy, changing my exercise habits, not so much. Right now it's sporadic. Maybe I just ... Fri, 23 Mar 2012 23:02:44 EST Insomnia makes for a rough night. It's a good thing there are awesome movies on at 1 in the morning or I would be bored out of my teeth. Oh yeah I'm pro at multi-tasking. YAY me. It kinda sucks that i tend to be awake at night a lot because excercizing when everyone else is sleeping usually wakes them up. <BR> Thu, 22 Mar 2012 01:13:48 EST
